Tha Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 14 Ks

December 04, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

John Carney, who went from the top of the rankings, to out of the rankings altogether, reappears this week at #1. There’s no real value difference between he and Lawrence Tynes, as long as one or the other is doing the kicking, and they’re not sharing duties. Just be careful from week to week to make sure you’ve got the right guy in. Garrett Hartley is a safe alternative; he’s been getting good points, kicks in a home dome, and has no one to compete with on the Saints. Here are the rest of this week’s kicker rankings too.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 14. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 14 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 14 lineup decisions.
